Gigi Di Biagio warned his Italy Under-21 side they can’t “leave the game in the balance” after a 1-0 win over Slovenia.
This was the Azzurrini’s first match in qualifying for the 2017 European Championships and they hit the woodwork twice along with a series of saves.
“It was a good Italy in the second half, but before the break we played with too slow a tempo,” the Coach told Rai Sport.
